New York Times bestselling author Rachel Harris writes humorous love stories about sassy girls-next-door and the hot guys that make them swoon. Vibrant settings, witty banter, and strong relationships are a staple in each of her books…and kissing. Lots of kissing.

An admitted Diet Mountain Dew addict and homeschool mom, she gets through each day by laughing at herself, hugging her kids, and watching way too much Food Network with her husband. She writes young adult, new adult, and adult romances, and LOVES talking with readers!

I think it is safe to say now that yes, book 2 *is* about Justin! It's a dual timeline, dual point-of-view story, switching back and forth between him and his love interest, freshman and senior years. It has been a bit of a struggle for me, getting these two characters just right, but I am loving their story :)

Thank you so much for reading and the wonderful compliment. I'm humbled xoxoxo(less)

Hi Dani! Thanks for reading :)

Yes, the third book in that series, Accidentally Married on Purpose, released this week. While that completes the Robicheaux clan, I love Magnolia Springs way too much to stop there. Plus, I've gotten tons of requests for a book about Charlie, a character you meet in book 3, and I think his book will start off the spin-off series. That should be out early next year.(less)

This day has been a long time coming.

As many of you know, whileThe Natural History of Usis completely a stand-alone novel, it’s also a companion to The Fine Art of Pretending.That book released way back in the fall of 2014–my 7th book out of now 9 books published (eep!)–but it was actually the first book I ever wrote. I first fell in love with the characters in this world SIX years ago, so I c...
